Garage Doors and Security Shutters in Ellesmere Port
Powell Doors are available for surveys, technical assistance, repairs and quotations around the Ellesmere Port area. We supply and install garage doors and security shutters by Aluroll and Hormann, after having worked in the door manufacturing and design industry since 2008.
Unlike many garage door companies, we are locally based, working from Chester in Cheshire, and being in easy driving distance of Ellesmere Port. In this way, we know the local area well, and keep our prices low. On the other hand, our factory in north Shropshire is also within easy range of Ellesmere Port, so that we can respond to repairs or replacement garage doors with very short lead times.
Security shutters for commercial or for domestic purposes are a particular specialty. Our fixing methods and the shutters themselves - of which we offer a vast range - we tested by BRE Global alongside the owner of the company. Jason Powell knows the best methods of entry into a shutter's fabric as a result, and, in consequence, we can install and design shutters which can defeat intruders with typical light, medium or heavy duty tool sets. The testing, held in 2009 and 2014, which Jason Powell oversaw (designing the shutters, too), led to the creation of a range of Secured by Design products which we can supply, alongside our conventional range.
Since shutters are often installed on building projects, we also boast a degree level proficiency in health and safety. So, whether you are looking for shutters on a new build, or replacing old shutters in Ellesmere Port - or whether security or aesthetic quality are the main concerns, Powell Doors can be of use.
Twin Garage Doors in Cheshire and Ellesmere Port
We installed these twin garage doors in a single day, later adding a threshold weatherstrip to give additional resistance to rain intrusion. It should be noticed by any householder that the slope of a drive way or concrete entrance to a garage will affect rain water flow. Although every sectional and roller garage door has an EPDM weather seal at the bottom leading edge of the door, this will not stop running or pooled water.
Amongst much else, we can install completely transparent shutters. Jason Powell installed this shutter, and designed it with the main contractors for a weeks before going to site. This particular shutter was 72m square, and installed at John Lewis in Ipswich. Steel frames were fabricated according to Jason's drawings, and wrapped for collection by him (and painted with rust protection at the same time!); the shutter was delivered by 12m truck.
After the steel posts were fixed and welded into place, a Telehandler picked up the curtain (while it was contained in rigid timber frames) and put it into position. At either end, a scissor lift then allowed the installation team to insert and tighten suitable nuts and bolts.
The motor was slid on, and a simple up / down switch send the barrel turning, opening or closing the shutter. Later, the shop fitters built around the rolling curtain, completely enclosing it.
We also carry out repairs!
I have found that roller shutter installation and repairs companies around Ellesmere Port and Cheshire do not often hail from the area, and they keep their customers waiting, whether for new shutters, or for repairs. But Powell Doors are a better option, since we are local to you, and bring military attitudes toward making shutters right and installed to the demands of business.
If your supplier of shutters or repairs seems to let you down, give Powell Doors a try, and be surprised!
